The Dancer Keepsake Box

Creative expression comes from within
$45.25
“The Dancer is about creativity… everything we create starts with a little idea — many times we get these ideas in quiet moments of inner reflection. I wanted to validate the time spent daydreaming that seems unproductive, but from which spurts of creativity arise. It’s so important to quietly imagine and get excited about possibilities. I chose dance as a universal expression of creativity because modern dance and ballet is what I watch to be inspired. It is sculpture in motion! And one of the most beautiful ways of using the body to express emotion.” –Susan Lordi

Our Story
Willow Tree sculptural art forms beautifully express love, closeness, healing, courage, hope… all the emotions of a life well lived. Artist Susan Lordi hand carves the original of each figure from her studio in Kansas City Missouri. Pieces are cast from her original carvings, and individually painted by hand. Expression is revealed through gestures only… a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. The simplicity of form and absence of facial features signify Willow Tree. It is Susan’s hope that these pieces be meaningful to both giver and receiver.
The Artist

Susan Lordi

Susan Lordi's artistic process is rather intuitive; she "sketches" in clay as she conceives, sculpts and carves each piece, always with a focus on gesture that speaks to the universal. By stripping down the essence of emotion to pure form, she opens the interpretation of each piece to the giver and the receiver. This one-of-a-kind approach to product creation makes her pieces truly individual... her hand, and her unique perspective, is evident in each sculpture.
